Reading support for parents

Please click here for information on how to best support your child with their reading at home. As always, please do speak to us if you require any further information or support.

Phonics support for parents

Your child now has their green set 1 sounds book and yellow set 2 and 3 sounds book. Please use these at home to help secure your child's knowledge. Soon we will be sending home a folder with alien words in. These are nonsense words to ensure the children are secure with identifying and blending sounds together. Please keep all of these resources in their school bag so that we can add to them when necessary.

By clicking on the link below you will be taken to a video showing how to pronounce the sounds your child will be learning in school. This will help you to support your child's reading and writing.

Free games to play with your child to help practise blending and identifying real and 'nonsense' words.
